I have a friend who is doing graduate work on click beetles, which not only synchronize flashes, they have two colors of flashes, and apparently use them for communication.

Oh, wow! I've never seen one in the wild. (far too cold and dry here.) I thought you were in Michigan, but are you further south?

There are a lot of species, and some don't flash, and some apparently only flash when it's dark and they're In The Mood.

My friend is trying to locate them, but she's in Texas, so the information that they're in SC is only kinda useful to her. And, yeah, they're super clicky.
